Presented in its iconic monochrome colourway with modern updates for a super clean finish, these adidas Superstar Shoes have smooth white nubuck uppers with core black decoration and gold metallic branding. A signature detail of any Superstar model, a shell-look rubber toe cap adds durability to the front of the shoe whilst on either side of the foot perforation sits in between three core black coloured stripes. The laces are held in place by a nubuck border and the tongue below has rectangular branding printed in gold metallic showing ‘adidas’ lettering above a trefoil emblem. The ankle collar is padded and throughout the inside a breathable mesh lining has been added. On the back of the heel a core black tab provides a background for an additional trefoil graphic in white. Standing up to everyday wear and abrasions, the white outsole widens slightly at the heel and has a subtle textured surface whilst underfoot a herringbone tread pattern supplies reliable grip.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the adidas Superstar was originally released as a basketball shoe but gained a rich following within fashion, culture and music as the defining style of the ‘80s, as seen on the feet of hip hop trio Run DMC. Maintaining its classic allure, modern reworks use updated materials and construction processes to ensure the best in quality and finish.
